Sure, there are several made just for this purpose. What country are you in? The device selection does vary somewhat.
Also, There’s also one made for HomeKit, so if you use Apple devices, that’s an additional option although it doesn’t work with smartthings. But it’s been very reliable at our house.
This is the one we use with HomeKit. We have two of them, and they work very well, but there’s no smartthings integration unless you were using homebridge. Super easy set up, you just screw it onto the Faucet and then screw the hose into the other side. (It’s battery operated.)
Alternatively, some people just get a regular dumb electrically powered valve control and plug it into a smart pocket socket. But that is more setup work than the ones that are specifically designed to control a hose.
Sorry, I should have pointed that out. If you want to make changes, you must use their app.
The device on right plugs into an inside outlet nearby and connects to internet. The device on left is what attaches to hose bib and is battery powered. I believe that they talk to each other using Bluetooth.
Orbit Bhyve’S ALEXA Integration only can control ONE hose bib device! If you have several, like we do, the voice integration is really not applicable! I was not happy that Orbit could only develop an integration for ONE hose device since they advertise Alexa & Google Integration!
I am close (maybe a few more weeks of my testing) to releasing a separate RaspberryPi Node Docker instance that one can install along with the Orbit Bhyve Controller that will allow hose device control (On/Off) from SmartThings! One must still setup the zones, watering schedule, weather, smart watering parameters in the Orbit OEM app, but SmartThings can activate a zone/device based on a home automation event. Stay Tuned!
I have an issue with the water valve in my backyard… it leaks and I’ve tried to repair it many times it still leaks. So, instead of turning off the outside “round handle” water value I turn off the valve for this unit in the house…which is actually for me in the garage. I have an attached garage. But I’m absent minded at times so… I added this device to the valve in the garage. This water valve is just for the backyard faucet…
and I use webcore to automate it as I need. Don’t know if you have the same indoor valve as I have but this work well for me. I also have this type of valve on my main-water incoming supply and lots of water leak censors as well. You can use this zwave device to automate your watering as long as you have this type of valve indoors to the water supply and it doesn’t require ANY plumbing. It’s simple to install.
It maybe overkill for you but there are several full blown smart garden irrigation systems available. I believe the following can be linked to Smartthings either via official app or by user written ones.
Both of the above are US products and sadly do not have official EU distribution.
There is (for others) the Gardena product but there does not yet seem to be a Smartthings integration although you could use IFTTT. Ironically this product might not be as easy to get in the USA.
Don’t forget about Spruce. They have a SmartApp and DTH’s for their controller, your zones, and their moisture sensors. Works great with ST, including Automations and Scenes. I’ve been using their stuff since they were first released and couldn’t be happier.
